Please note: There are no cheap Wong jokes in this post. That wasn’t easy. They always seem so wight.

Model With A Pearl Earring


She’s Lithuanian. She’s beautiful. She’s my old friend. She’s a full time muse. She’s the Model With A Pearl Earring and wow, what she can do with a scarf!

Feeling very grateful right about now.

(It’s Always) Mina Time

Io non ti conosco
io non so chi sei
so che hai cancellato
con un gesto i sogni miei.
Sono nata ieri
nei pensieri tuoi
eppure adesso siamo insieme.
Non ti chiedo sai
quanto resterai,
dura un giorno la mia vita
io saprò che l’ho vissuta
anche solo un giorno
ma l’avrò fermata insieme a te,
a te che ormai sei mio
tu, l’amore, io
insieme, insieme.
Io ti amo e ti amerò
finché lo vuoi
anche sempre se tu lo vorrai
insieme, insieme
insieme a te.
Tu, tu l’amore, io
insieme, insieme.


I do not know
I do not know who you are
I know you have cancelled
with a gesture of my dreams.
I was born yesterday
in your thoughts
but now we are together.
I’m not asking you know
As you stay,
lasts one day my life
I will know that I have lived
Also only one day
but I will stop with you,
now that you’re mine
you, my love, me,
together, together.
I love you and I will love you
as long as you want
even more if you want it
together, together
with you.
You, you love me
together, together.

Judy’s Flower Shop

This white hot seventy one year old bit of Judy info is recently in from our correspondent in Cock Eyed Cove. Go ahead Cock Eyed Cove…
In the late 30s/early 40s, Judy Garland opened a flower shop at 5421 Wilshire Blvd. This was around the time she was filming “The Wizard of Oz” and her mother thought it might be a good idea to invest her money in something more sensible and practical and non-show-biz related. There are photos of Judy “working” in the store but with her super-busy MGM schedule, it’s likely that these were nothing more than photo opportunities.

RIP Phyllis

When Phyllis Diller was born the doctor said it was the first full-term mis-carriage he had ever seen. Then he slapped her mother.
